Children of War Are Suffering

A Save the Children child protection officer, Bol Nyuol, holds a 6-year-old girl at her grandmother’s home in South Sudan. The girl and her brother have been living there since violence broke out in December 2013 and they became separated from their mother. Their grandmother says, "We have always been in war. My family has never known peace. My missing daughter was born in Ethiopia because of the war between the south and north of Sudan and now my grandchildren are experiencing war, too.” Photo credit: Jonathan Hyams/Save the Children, November 22, 2015.
So Many Ways to Help

So Many Children in Need

Bdai, Vietnamese mother of two, bends into a stream to fill a water bottle for her children. She lives in a rural highland community suffering the effects of drought. Her crops failed, food is scarce and expensive, and she cannot afford basics like medicine for her children. Save the Children has helped families like hers, by providing rice to feed the family for a month, and trucking in water to the hardest-hit communities.

Save the Children has provided a library-in-a-box for their village in Pakistan. Muneeba, started school late, so she was paired up with a reading buddy, Najma who Najma helps her to read as a part of Save the Children's Literacy Boost initiative.

He was recently treated for malaria by a Save the Children medical team. He and his brother are living with an aunt in a small mud house after having to flee violence in their area. Struggling to make ends meet, the family received basic provisions and some financial assistance from Save the Children, and the children are being monitored for malnutrition.
